After the 1888 blaze, all that remained of Hiram Rush's 1856 mercantile building – which housed the first home of Lodge No. 55 – were the bricks. These bricks were used to rebuild the structure you find today at 623 Main Street. The building still serves as a Masonic Lodge Hall to this day. Driving down Main Street, the historic building certainly stands out, as it was designed for both durability and aesthetics. While its oversized stained-glass panes typify a Gothic style, its rooftop is defined by a gabled parapet. The first floor's windows are reinforced by cast-iron piers, and in the center of its brick facade, a plaque remains naming the building "Mason Lodge No. 55." According to An Architectural Guidebook to San Francisco and the Bay Area, the first tenant of the newly built two-storey brick building was the Moses Dinkelspiel & Co. dry goods store. The Heritage Collection, a book of historical places in Suisun City, notes that the commercial space has been occupied by a variety of businesses over the years, from a pool hall to an auto parts store. Today, a hair salon – Bellezza Hair Studio – operates from there. Locally, the building is also known as Stanley Y. Beverley Lodge. When Fairfield-Suisun Lodge No. 55 moved to the Masonic Temple in Fairfield, Stanley Beverly Lodge No. 108 took over residence of the top floor. Find us at http://stanleyybeverleylodge108pha.org/
